When visiting Casanare in Eastern Colombia I noticed this young iguana in a flowering shrub. I couldn’t believe my luck — the color contrast was stunning. And surprisingly, the iguana showed little fear, allowing me to approach for this closeup shot using a macro lens.



In case you don’t believe me and think the background is a sofa or something, here’s the zoomed out photo.
